Forever Knight -- Janette Touch

Rec: Al Qasbah Sirocco

The delightful dejla is writing me and em_kellesvig a fic for our birthday. It's called Al Qasbah Sirocco and is Methos/Janette (from Forever Knight. Two of my favourite characters! While I've written both of them together in the same story, I've never paired them, so this is totally and absolutely unique for me.

It's a wonderful tale, a WIP, so it's like getting lots of little presents every few days. She's a very talented writer, and I can't wait to see where this goes!

Japan - Autumn Leaves Geisha

Mental Whiplash

So today, I'm mentally plotting/writing the third part of my unintentional mini-series of the week. It's happy and fun and has an adorable brat of a Methos trying to win his bet with Duncan to get Triona to forgive him by the end of the day. And on the other side, until I went to bed last night (with a short break to watch Holby!), I was working on the next part of 'Fondly' which is currently dealing with evil, villainous mirrorverse Methos who's doing all sorts of terrible things to Triona.

I think I'm giving myself mental whiplash! Switching back and forth between the two is certainly proving to be an interesting exercise in writing. In a way, writing the happier stuff is helpful, because it keeps a fresh image in my mind when writing the not happy story of just what their relationship is, why they work as a couple, and the history they have.

Goodness knows they've had their up and downs (lots of downs!) over the centuries, but what's playing out in 'Fondly' could quite possibly be the defining moment in their relationship. It's good for me to remember they have a strong foundation. Brings a whole new meaning to 'for better or worse'!

Methos - Latte Foam

Notes: 'To The Victor Go The Spoils'

What have you guys got me into? I'm turning in to jinxed_wood with multiple running WIPs!!

So here's the deal. I have one chapter done of the third part of my unintentional series. The first part being 'Amongst the Stars', part two being 'Make That Two Bottles'. But chapter one of this latest, which I'm calling 'To The Victor Go The Spoils', is already longer than the entirety of part two! Since it seems to be taking on a life of its own, I'm declaring it my very own fluffy summer serial. I'll post parts of it, along with 'I Remember You Not Fondly' my angsty summer serial, as I get them done. You can have mental whiplash right along with me!

For those keeping track, the fluffy summer serial takes place about 225 years prior to the events in 'Fondly' -- yes, I have an Excel spreadsheet to keep track of the timeline!

So stay tuned, first part will be up in a bit. Then I need to work on the next bit of the angst fest.

And here's Part One

Methos - Sin
